Default Jammin x1 truggy...yay or nay?

I'm looking at a fair cheap jammin truggy. I'm not sure if I really want to race one or not. So I don't mind spending a little if I don't like it

What are u pros and cons about the Jammin x1 truggy?

Thanks
Daniel

Wow, said the spider to the fly,lol. I'm just getting ready to put a really good one on the market. It is a tough as nails truggy. Ity also handle well. But not as well as newer models. It is slightly heavier and about 3/4 shorter wheelbase than most current models. It can handle abuse something fierce and keep on coming. As far as racing, it takes a smooth touch. When I drive, I'm inconsistant and throttle heavy, so its a bit twitchy. When my bud drives it, hes smooth and can make it fly! So it depends in the driver. Parts are still readily available too.
The one I have has new diffs, 16mm big bore shocks new brakes and a mess of spare arms and chassic parts and a beautiful painted body. for 145.00 shipped. let me know, I'll gets some pics to ya

Great bashing/semi racing truggy. Had a few of these back 3 years ago and never was really disappointed...

For racing il tell you the truth i would just look into some nice used racer owned Truggys that are newer and not as outdated .
For one the newer Gen truggys will handle better all around.

Thanks for the input guys. I pretty much was thinking what all of you said.

I ended up getting what I know. I got a good trade for a AE Rc8 truggy!
